Dining Out

For many of us, dining out is an inevitability in today's society. Unfortunately, restaurants are huge sources of excess and waste. Not only is food wasted, but water, energy and resources (like paper and other materials used to make containers and packaging) are, as well. This is bad news for the planet because it depletes resources and contributes to CO2 emissions and climate change.
Many dining establishments are part of the movement to improve the environmental-friendliness of the industry. Restaurants have started buying energy credits, running on alternative energy, conserving water and materials, buying and serving local food and many other green efforts. Diners can also work toward making it a greener experience by not wasting food, drinks and materials and frequenting local and sustainable eateries. (Photo: Flickr)
